Unbelievable, what is going on? What is the process of corruption that led employees in responsible and public positions into doing the opposite of what their jobs are supposed to be? What is happening?
Were the people, initially hired because they had the right qualifications for their job, changed through experiences in their lives, or experiences on the job, became disgruntled and disappointed?
Or maybe did they get dissatisfied with their salaries and saw ways to subsidize their rather poor wages in an easy and undetectable manner, taking advantage of their position of trust?
Where they put under pressure by others to deliver and pay up, maybe a nasty divorce, or from greedy children, or possibly, their dealer, or other creditors?
Or where they from the start the same people that were just biding their time, until they could strike, with anti-social personality disorder from the start, who finally showed their true colours?
Then the case of the dental students comes to mind who posted misogynistic (woman hating) messages and photos on Facebook, slandering co-students, all people that are not even in their positions of trust yet and already losing sight of their responsibility before entering the work world. God help us; lucky for us that they already showed their true face. Were these students afraid for the competition they got from their co-students, or were they rebuffed in their attempts to bed the young women, taking revenge by their unfunny jibs and slandering? Or were they challenged into showing how “manly” they are, when faced with questions of their sexual preferences? Or maybe they were just drunk.
I would love to do some research in each of these examples that were all on one day within the news hour on TV today. I can’t remember the corruption being so blatant and frequent as reported today.
I sure hope that this day is NOT symptomatic for the year we are going to face.
